WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICS OF THE VALENTINE HILL FARM CSA for 2018?
CSA, (for Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farmer and to receive a weekly basket of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables from Valentine Hill Farm. Your membership is an investment in our seasonal planting. Thank you for your support and confidence in our farm and mission to provide healthy, sustainable, chemical-free foods.
Our summer season CSA will begin on the week starting Friday June 15, 2018 and run continuously for twenty (20) weeks, ending Saturday October 27, 2018. The calendar for pick-up is on the back of the application. If you cannot pick up your share for any given week, please contact us as soon as possible to make alternate arrangements. For example, a family member, neighbor, or co-worker can pick up, or we can donate your share to a needy customer. To contain costs, we can no longer replace shares that are not picked up. We provide a reusable CSA/Grocery tote to pack your CSA share each week. Please bring the empty tote back each week in exchange for a full tote. The last empty tote of the season can be dropped off at any market or the farm at the end of the season. Thank you for helping us keep the cost of your share down by returning all your reusable totes.
We offer four types of shares: large, large with baked goods, small, and small with baked goods. We use 90% of the USDA recommended vegetable serving for determining share size.
- A large share will provide seasonally available fruits and vegetables for four people.
- A large share with baked goods will additionally include one of our organic bakery items per week.
- A small share will provide seasonally available fruits and vegetables for two people.
- A small share with baked goods will additionally include one of our organic bakery items per week.
Please note: To contain costs, we can no longer replace shares which are not picked up.
